Another week=plenty more great new or recently restocked shoes and boots for you to consider—plus, as always, an oldie but goodie. And don’t forget to check out last week’s lineup. Happy hunting.
Grant Stone Honey Glazed Natural Shell Ottawa Boot: $675
Grant Stone rarely does shell—but here it is. The split-toe Ottawa is my personal favorite boot model of theirs, and for this limited pre-order release they’re using natural Horween shell with a light “honey” glaze, mounted atop Grant Stone’s proprietary (and very good, in my experience) low-profile micro-stud rubber outsole. These will go fast, so if you like them—pounce.
GRANT STONE FOUNDER WYATT GILMORE ON QUALITY, CHINA, AND THE WHOLE ALDEN THING: THE STITCHDOWN CONVERSATION
Pigeon Tree Crafting x Santalum Collab No. 3.5: $410
These are a (semi-) oldie but a goodie, but I got reminded of them when I saw @bigdudeindenim’s new, astoundingly beautiful Pigeon Tree x Santulum boots made with Tarnsjo veg-tanned leather from Sweden. Fantastic price for a handmade boot.
Sons of Henrey George Split Toe in Walnut Country Calf: $320 ex VAT
A Belgian brand whose shoes are made in Spain, I haven’t covered Sons of Henrey a ton. But I’m very impressed by their offerings, and the price is right. Their split-toe is my favorite, and just got restocked.

Meermin Split Toe Boot in Cognac Shell Cordovan: $450
Speaking of great values—that’s something Mallorcan outfit Meermin always delivers, especially when it comes to their virtually unmatched prices for shell cordovan. These Shinki cognac shell boots get a dose of ruggedness thanks to their commando sole, and are available in Meermin’s MTO groups for just a short time more. It’s on Meermin’s new HOK last, its widest.
Meermin Cap Toe Boot in Rapello Snuff Suede: $250
Another new winner from Meermin, these cap toes are something new from them, as far as I’ve seen. Leather sole on these, still HOK last. Damn handsome.

Alden x Brogue Mentor Blucher in Hummus Suede: $620
These absolutely beautiful hand-sewn apron-front bluchers on Alden’s always-elegant Plaza last have been out for a few weeks now, but I haven’t stopped looking at them—and there are still a bunch of sizes left.
Tricker’s x Division Road Churchill Boot: $565
Seattle-based Division Road consistently puts out the best Tricker’s makeups you’ll see in the States, and this storm-welted, commando-soled Churchill is no exception. Love the subtle pinking and pull-tab. Great value for a ton of boot—Tricker’s are functionally indestructible.
